Margaret Phillips Steinam, M.D.

Margaret Phillips Steinam, M.D., 94, Mequon, WI, formerly of Woodstock, died Monday, Nov. 20, 2017.

She was born June 30, 1923.

“Maggie” or “Speed” or “Sprouty,” as she was known to family and friends, was a true Renaissance woman, accomplishing much in her lifetime.

After graduating from the University of Illinois, she spent a brief period as the Dean of Women at Iowa, then went on to nursing school at the University of Minnesota. Still feeling she could accomplish more, she attended medical school at Northwestern University, where she also completed her residency in internal medicine.

She and her husband, Ed, moved to Woodstock, where she had a very successful medical practice.

In addition to her academic pursuits, she was an avid musician and sportswoman. She played violin, tennis, and golf. In her later years, she began to participate in triathlons, completing her last triathlon at age 86. She also competed in numerous local and national tennis tournaments and a variety of events in the Senior Olympics.

Survivors include two daughters, Dr. Susan (Cory) Wilson and Patricia Saunders; and grandchildren, Ben and Margaux Wilson.

A private celebration of life will take place on Margaret’s birthday, June 30, 2018, in Mequon.

Arrangements were made by the Schramka-Densow Funeral Home, Thiensville, WI.
